Thomas Frank – Pity the Billionaire


Publication date 2012-11-24
Topics Documentary
Economic catastrophe usually sparks social protest and demands for change, but when Thomas Frank, the great chronicler of American paradox, set out in 2009 to look for American discontent, he found only wildly unexpected results: The American Right was strangely reinvigorated by the arrival of hard times. As a result, Frank, author of Pity the Billionaire, offers a diagnosis of the cultural malady that has transformed collapse into profit, reconceived the Founding Fathers as heroes from an Ayn Rand novel, and enlisted the powerless in a fan club for the prosperous.
